I too, am a nurse, and you would think that our peers would be more empathetic. I just got to the point where I don’t say a word. I believe they think I’m lying or something, but i’ve learned to find out that they kinda know when I’m having a flare up. When I’m in really bad pain or extremely fatigued I get very quiet, and I also have a very hard time swallowing and can’t eat solid foods. So they either think I’m bi-polar or they get it. Some times I just want to say sc……. you.It’s not worth the energy though so I just keep going on. Good luck! I know how frustrating this can be. xoxoxoxo Roxie
